Canada | Publication of final decision after screening assessment of 15 substances specified on the Domestic Substances List

Whereas the 14 substances identified in Table 1 of the annex below are substances in the Phthalate Substance Grouping identified under subsection 73(1) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, or were otherwise identified as priorities based on other human health concerns;

Whereas 14 additional substances identified in Table 2 of the annex below were not assessed individually, with the exception of DEHP, but were included within the scope of this assessment because of their potential to contribute to cumulative risk from combined exposure to phthalates;

Whereas DEHP is a substance already listed on Schedule 1 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 and was previously found to be harmful to human health, but there was insufficient information to conclude on its potential to cause harm to the environment;
